Erub (Darnley) Island is one Australia’s most remote places, located in the Torres Strait Islands in the most north easterly point of Australia. Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists from Erub Arts Collaborative have worked with ghost nets (abandoned fishing nets) to create an immersive installation of an underwater world including vivid coral and magnificent sculptural fish, turtles, sharks and jellyfish.
Ghost Nets of the Ocean shares the artists’ concerns for the loss of marine life and environmental damage caused by rogue nets, bringing to light the irreparable harm that discarded nets cause to marine life.
